TrekRanks Episode 62: Top 5 Trek Pets

Originally released on August 08, 2019

Listen to the show :

Our furry family members take center stage this week as TrekRanks highlights our Top 5 Trek Pets. Well, to be fair, this week's selections are not all furry, but they are all beloved animal friends. Our highlight of everyone's favorite pets in Trek history coincides with Clear The Shelters Day as we encourage everyone out there to add a new family member to your household, and to adopt, not shop. We are joined by Sue Kisenwether of Women at Warp and Claire Little to celebrate all things Trek Pets with a variety of four-legged friends!

In our regular Diagnostic Cycle we remind everyone that August 17, 2019, is "CLEAR THE SHELTERS DAY" around the United States. So, if you're thinking about taking home a new furry friend, please adopt, don't shop, and think about heading to a local animal shelter to adopt a new family member during Clear the Shelters day on August 17! Hundreds of shelters around the nation will be waiving or discounting their fees as part of the adoption drive. You can find out more at

After discussing their own personally pet histories, Jim, Sue and Claire breakdown exactly how they finalized their lists in this week's Prime Directive. And then the crew moves into The Order of Things to relay their fluffy, gilled and winged picks!

Of course, one segment is not enough to contain all that fluffy goodness in this episode, so this week's Secondary Systems is chock full of additional picks to help corner on tail-waving cuteness. Once everyone has regained their composure, Jim briefly reviews some of the interesting statistical anomalies that emerged from the selections in the Regeneration Cycle.

The episode concludes with a visit into a Temporal Causality Loop as we flashback to Episode 57 for feedback on our Top 5 Underappreciated Characters.

As always, make sure to hail us at 609-512-LLAP (5527) and record your own personal TrekRanks log to let us know your Top 5 Trek Pets. Your comments might be used via a Temporal Causality Loop in an upcoming episode.
